Dem Bones!

Hello My Friends,

Craftin Desert Divas is having a September Stamp Release and everyday they are giving away a different SVG.  Yesterday they gave away this very cute skeleton.  Jeepers Creepers.  

I have decided to make a treat bag for all of my neighbors that come and eat chili and hang out with us on Halloween night.  So here is Jeepers Creepers made into a treat bag.   I only changed the SVG slightly by giving my little skeleton a little skeleton heart.

This is quite a time consuming SVG because you have to cut paste each bone on to the black background separately.  But I LOVE doing intricate work like this!  Here is a hint, cut the white pieces last and leave them on your mat so that you can pick up each piece individually and put it in place.

So yesterday when I was hopping through the Craftin Desert Divas Design Team looking for letters to win this fella, I came upon the most beautiful card at Luv Scrapping Together, she made the eyes of her cat look so cool using Glossy Accents.  I looked around my craft room and I own Glossy Accents.  I decided to use it on my skeletons bones.  I may have gone a little crazy with it (first time I have ever used it).

Can you tell from this picture that the bones are glossy?

I also wanted to show you the side of the bag.  It is bones!

I did not put the bones on the front because I did not think my skeleton would show up against them.

I am entering this treat bag into the following challenges:

DL Art - September Linky Challenge
Come and Get It Challenge - Clear it Out (used scrap pieces (stash item) (s to make skeleton & sentiment) & used Glossy Accents which were so stashed I didn't know I owned.
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft for the Craic - Anything but a square or a treat bag okay?
PDE Linky Party - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate all of your comments!
